KVM: arm64: Fix order of vcpu_write_sys_reg() arguments

A typo in kvm_vcpu_set_be()'s call:
| vcpu_write_sys_reg(vcpu, SCTLR_EL1, sctlr)
causes us to use the 32bit register value as an index into the sys_reg[]
array, and sail off the end of the linear map when we try to bring up
big-endian secondaries.
